Elvis Preseli and the Undertakers

Elvis Preseli and the Undertakers
Thursday 8th August
Venue: Clarence Inn
Time: 9:00pm
Info: "I AM the only bald, Welsh-speaking, Elvis impersonator who doesn't sing Elvis songs in the world " says Gareth Benney, otherwise known as Elvis Preseli. It is a bit too much of a sales pitch to fit on the posters, and even the biggest circus barker in showbiz, Col Tom Parker, might have struggled to market him, but Gareth is a popular chap in the clubs of South Wales as well as in Germany. Having said that, the organisers of the annual Porthcawl Elvis festival just can't help believing he is poking fun at their idol. He explains: "They threw us out of the festival because I used to take a George Foreman grill on stage with me, which I called The Presizzler, and I would cook up burgers, because Elvis loved burgers. "They thought I was going too far. "I love Elvis. I always have. But they thought I was making fun of him. I was actually making fun of Elvis Impersonators." What with the improbable nylon wigs and the paunches-in-jumpsuits, Presley impersonators in general are an open goal, it has to be said. But the fact that Geraint doesn't cover any Elvis songs may have got the fans all shook up too. "I always used to sing Elvis songs, and every time I was at the karaoke I would do Suspicious Minds, but my friends got sick of it. "So now we do all kinds of other material Gnarls Barkley, Outkast, Radiohead, Scissor Sisters but we do them in the style of Elvis." Geraint, from Aberdare, gets around the dubious wig problem too, by not wearing one. "I have the outfits the jumpsuit from the Vegas years, the leather one from the Comeback Special. But I don't wear a wig. And am completely bald. "I do put the sideburns on though." A keen practical joker and known for his on-stage jollity with the band, I can't help thinking Elvis would get the joke. But the ban from the festival seems to be a lifetime one. "I am barred for life, yes," says Geraint. I would suggest he starts up a fringe festival, but Elvis would never have been seen dead in a fringe.
Hope you had a good time tonight.

Luckily no kids were on it but my sister said the driver was pretty shook up.
What is wrong with some people, I am glad no kids were injured. I hope that guy loses his license for a while.

My cousin and his family are driving up today for the weekend. His family has a place just down the road from mama's place, so it'll be fun to have them here. Ed's also my best friend, and we've played together in the band for more than 20 years. Maybe we'll plan a big BBQ this weekend!

I hope y'all have a great day!
X-treme Bradmac! Have a great time!

I miss him terribly as the he was in palliative care the last 3 months and I was there a lot...as much as I could with two small kiddos and a full time job ... oh and a hubby too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and a public Christmas Apology to Mumof2

she was my partner in the ornament exchange last year and with everything going on with my dad well I just didn't send it. I found it a few weeks ago and finally mailed it today.. I hope she can forgive me and that I am welcome here again.
Nice to see you back.

I am sorry for the loss of your father.

Good evening,

Another disgruntling day at work, that's all I will say about that.

Vacation is going to be here soon, I am so looking forward to that.

Just watching the Bengals preseason game, the score looks good, but it means as much as a blizzard warning in July, I do have to say I like this team a lot this year.

My friend had her American Idol audition, she is not going to Hollywood, but we may see her on TV when the new season starts. She said she was interviewed on camera so we can look forward to that.

I hope everyone is doing well.


Goodnight, friends.

Sorry she didn't make it to hollywood, but hey, it would be cool just to see yourself on tv.


Hope tomorrow goes better for you!!!
